We, Jay and I had a blast. It was cool to see so many rigs from big to small, mine was definetly small compared to the others. We got some nice shots of peope blasting through the snow and of course getting stuck. Jay will get me a copy of his pictures sometime this week. I am working on my shots, will post some now.

Just wanted to say thanks to all who helped peull me out and Steve who gave me a jacket, forgot mine but did not need it really. Also a thanks from Jay for the pizza, good stuff.

Here are some pics I took, not sure who everyone is yet but they tell the story.

Thanks for the invite Trev! If I get my 80 back together I just might possibly join you.

Default Further Thoughts

Thanks to Stephen Rudy for helping me chain up and to Ige for helping me unchain. Also thanks to Ige for making sure I kept my Carhartt coat zipped up - it sucks being a one handed gimp and unable to zip up your own jacket. I purposely didn't take much in the way of fluids but I'm sure Ige would have helped me there too. I'm really glad that the Longfields held up as I would have really been up you-know-which creek if a birf had let go this year like one did last on last year's pizza run. Come to think of it, I would have been up the same creek then without Cheeseman's help and parts. Cheeseman, where the heck were you yesterday?
Maybe next year the skis, I mean, springs will be up a little higher and Bart will be better able to negotiate the deep stuff like we had on this run. SOA? Who knows?? Treeroot's pictures on his site showed the SUA plowing pretty good.
Thanks, too, to Jaderunner and the Rising Sun for a great run and pizza and storytelling afterwards.

Had a great time. Thanks everyone who pulled me out. And especially thanks Red Chili for helping me make sure my daughter didn't end up under one of the trucks while negotiating the parking area in the sled. Here are a few pics.
Thanks subzali, the pic turned out pretty good.

I thought Cheeseman was pulling you out last year and his let go? Other way around? I'm so confused, although last year I was still trying to find out which 62 belonged to who. I think if a Longfield broke then everybody would have to pitch in and buy extra and Nathaniel would have to give up that trophy he got for his rear axleshaft.

Here are some of my pictures. The first two are of Matt Farr in Hulk, triing to be the first one to break into the parking lot before he put his chains on and getting stuck. The last one is of me at the play area, where I took the group to on the way back.

Cheeseman was unchained so we decided he would break trail and I was right behind him and chained up. He got BIG stuck and I was strapping him backwards when the birf broke on my passenger side. I didn't realize the the steering was at full lock so it was a classic case of going backwards, steering at full lock and grabbing traction in an uneven manner due to the chains. Birf probably would have held up if I'd have hadn't had the steering cocked to one side - should have stuck my head out the window!
